Begin the Kekekabic Trail


Kekekabic trail signToday we re-enter the Wilderness on the Kekekabic Trail. It was originally a fire road through the Superior National Forest, but decades ago was "lost" to the forest. Volunteers try to keep it open for hiking. Only hand tools can be used in designated wilderness.

Portions of this trail can be very difficult to follow. There was a huge blowdown in 1999, and portions have burned since then. Last fall two hikers were lost trying to follow the Kek. They were safely located the next day. We are using GPS to avoid their fate.
